Luminex announces low cost CD-R and DVD-R data publishing, distribution and archiving solutions for UNIX and Linux systems.

Luminex Software Inc., a supplier of data distribution, archiving and storage products, has announced its new DataWARE Workstation product line, which establishes a new standard for desktop optical data archiving and publishing by leveraging consumer technology to cost-effectively deliver benefits to the corporate IT user.

DataWARE Workstation supports CD-R, DVD-R and DVD-RAM media using UNIX servers from IBM, Sun, Hewlett-Packard and SGI and Linux servers. The product line includes DataWARE Workstation CD-R and DataWARE Workstation Combo, a multi-recorder solution for CD-R, DVD-R and DVD-RAM publishing.

"Optical recording--especially data archiving and distribution--is a vital data center technology," said Michael Saunders, president of Luminex. "DataWARE Workstation brings the experience and know-how we've gained with DataWARE Enterprise CD in large data center environments down to the UNIX workstation."

The DataWARE Workstation Combo incorporates the new DVD MULTI-Drive, developed by Panasonic Industrial Co. "Panasonic is pleased to supply the OEM DVD MULTI-Drive to Luminex, which plays a key role in Luminex's continued innovation in the data archiving and publishing industry," said Dana Berzin, product manager for Panasonic's OEM computer drives. "By leveraging the latest optical media technologies, Luminex continues to deliver higher performance and improved ROI to their customers."

Both DataWARE Workstation Combo and DataWARE Workstation CD-R are easily installed onto a customer's current workstation and use an advanced graphical user interface to guide the user through the optical recording process. List price for DataWARE Workstation Combo is $1,595; DataWARE Workstation CD-R is priced at $1,090.

"UNIX workstation users--from small businesses to specialized applications in larger organizations--can now archive and distribute data quickly and at low cost, providing businesses greater flexibility and improved data and information handling at the desktop level," added Saunders.

DataWARE Workstation adheres to industry standards and utilizes automated integrity checks to ensure reliable production control. In addition, the Write-Once, Read Many (WORM) technology inherent in DVD-R and CD-R media meets recent government and industry requirements for retention of electronic records among financial and health care firms.

Luminex develops distinctive data storage products that tackle the complex challenges of storing, archiving, distributing and protecting data. Complemented by quality customer service, Luminex's innovative products create real value for our customers. The DataWARE product family simplifies CD and DVD creation for small to large businesses in finance, health care, prepress, government and education.

Luminex's VirtualBLUE line of parallel channel and ESCON emulators links IBM and plug-compatible mainframes with UNIX and Microsoft systems, resulting in improved operations and economics for large data centers.

Founded in 1994, Luminex is privately held and with headquarters in Riverside, and additional offices in San Diego, and Beaverton, Ore. DataWARE and VirtualBLUE products are available directly from Luminex and through selected partners worldwide.
